History Of The Air Jordan Brand

In 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company looking for ways to appeal to a new segment of the shoe market, and to reinvent themselves. Nike has turned to rookie Michael Jordan to order to make an endorsement deal, but MJ showed no interest at all. MJ had plans to sign a deal with either Adidas or Converse; he loved the brands, and in North Carolina, these were the shoes that wore to play basketball in. Unfortunately, both of the brands rejected him. Nike was offering to create a brand new line of shoes called Air Jordan, and MJ’s old agent, David Falk, saw this as a wonderful opportunity. MJ flew to the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon, after being convinced by his parents , and his agent. During his visit, Nike has shown him a special video presentation of his college career highlights, plus his high-flying Olympics moves with Pointer Sister’s “Jump” playing in the background. Peter Moore, Nike’s Old Head Designer, also shown MJ sketches of the Air Jordan 1, and apparel to go with it. It was featured in Black and Red, and MJ was very interested with these designs. He has stated: “I can’t wear these shoes, those are devil colors”. MJ has decided to finally make a deal with Nike, and has signed a 5-year deal that was worth $2.5 million. MJ has fueled the success of Nike, and the Air Jordan Brand is still popular today.

Air Jordan 4 History

The Air Jordan 4 was introduced back in 1989, created by the infamous Tinker Hatfield. This shoe was the first Jordan to feature over-molded mesh; the mesh was dipped in soft plastic and air was blown through it to clear out the plastic. Back in 1989, everyone felt that the sneaker was unattractive and no one liked them. But overtime, it grew on a lot of people. During their first release, the sneaker was retailed at $110.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe features a colorway inspired by Travis Scott’s Football Team he enjoyed watching during his youth: The Houston Oilers (an former professional NFL football team from 1960 to 1996. They are now known as the Tennessee Titans). It consists of a smooth University Blue suede upper, along with touches of black, Bleu Carolina and Noir. Additionally, you will notice his record label “Cactus Jack” printed on the left heel, and right insole of the shoe. Finally, Travis Scott’s name can be found on the inside of the left tongue in reverse.

  1. Hi AHMAD
    Love the post, didn’t realize there was so much involved in trainers, I have friends who just collect trainers and never actually wear them, im not sure if these would fall into that category but great information and well resourced.

    • Hello Brett, thanks for the comment. You are right, a lot of people collect sneakers, and keep them in deadstock condition. These would be nice for any one’s sneaker collection. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content!!!

  2. Thank you for the review! You go into some really good key points. I have a friend who is really into these types of shoes. I will be sure to pass this on!

  3. It’s so interesting how a rapper, singer, song writer can collaborate with a sneakers company to produce shoes in his name. I’m sure his fans will all make a grab for it! I love the design of this pair of sneakers. Showing it to my son.

  4. I have only seen my son purchase Air Jordans but the color combo to celebrate the Houston Oilers is definitely and added plus for a Texan. I remember Warren Moon back in the day and I enlisted in the Navy from Houston MEPs in 1988 when Houston was a competitive team.

    I enjoyed the unboxing to see the design features. I really beautiful shoe.

    All the Best,

    Louisa

  5. Hi Ahmad. Great site well documented, photos just beautiful. One thing, You should aerate your content, you have paragraph 9,11,13 lines, I think they should be 3 or 4 lines to be easier to read as taught in WA.Good luck.

    • Hello Claude, thanks for the comment and feedback. I have notice the mistakes I have make, and it will never happen again. Thanks for pointing this out for me. Feel free to always check out my site, as I post blogs daily!!!

  6. Yo I’m not gonna lie, those are are some cool looking shoes. At a friend’s suggestion, I started to upgrade my sneaker game. But that’s a lot if bread for kicks

  7. I love your review

    personally, I’m waiting for the brown pair to drop, this kind of blue is not really my thing

    I’m wondering why you talk about MJ so much in a review about the Cactus Jacks? maybe talk about how many pairs there are produced and maybe show pictures of them on feet, just a suggestion

    but nice review overall!

    • Hello Nick, thanks for the comment, and the suggestion. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  8. Hello Ahmed,
    I know that Jordans were notorious for being expensive, I understand that some of the shoes from a well loved brand, specially among the basketball and hip hopp community, are treasured.

    But these? Are a whole new level! I appreciate you putting me up on game on a whole new breed of J’s, I got to see where the direction of these kicks are going!
    I applaud the designers and the executives for this one. I see that they had expanded to a whole new territory and can’t wait for what they’ll come up next.
    Congratulations Travis Scott!

    Thank you Ahmed, keep doing what you do, your site is popping.
